Happy Halloween all you frightfully fabuless fashionistas. Today is the big day, and it is not too late to head out to your local thrift store to shop for a last minute costume! No need to sever an arm and a leg to pay for a creepy, crazy or cute costume. You can find ready made costumes at a fraction of the cost you would pay for retail. You can also use your imagination and totally put together your own look, and the price at the cash register won’t scare you!
Vicky and I of course went thrift shopping for our “saloon girl” costumes, and had a blast at the annual Halloween party at Murph’s Country Music Barn on Saturday night. We will be posting a separate blog on that soon, but for now we would like to share with you another fun Halloween experience we had earlier this week.
On Wednesday evening we headed out to the Roxy Theatre to see their production of The Rocky Horror Show. It was a lively, rollicking production, definitely meant for mature audiences only, (but we attended anyway…..wink!) Lots of songs, dancing and audience participation made this an extra fun event. We loved doing the time warp! The entire cast put on an absolutely fabulous performance and we loved every minute.
To put ourselves in the mood we decided to dress up as characters in the play. Vicky went as Magenta, the maid, our friend and sister Kimmy, was Dammit Janet, and I was dressed up for Rocky’s Birthday celebration as a party guest. Of course everything we had on was thrifted!
Afterward the cast was nice enough to pose for pictures with members of the audience, us included! Following are a few pics.

Vicky put her Magenta inspired outfit together in a very short time. Of course she thrifted it!

Teresa with Eddie and Rocky. I’m a muscle fan! Wearing a black tee with red lips( as a nod to the opening credits of the movie Rocky Horror Picture Show). It was a gift so it was free! Black leather look skirt by Worthington purchased at Goodwill. Black Franco Sarto patent leather boots from Goodwill as well as black belt. Birthday tiara from Dollar Tree and a borrowed red boa finish the party goer look.
We would also like to let you know that during November and December the Roxy will be showing films featuring vintage flicks and modern classics on Sunday afternoons. Admission is $5 and tickets will be available at the door one hour prior to show time. Just a few of the titles included The wizard of Oz, E.T., and White Christmas. Check out http://www.roxyregionaltheatre.org/filmseries for more info.
Till next time be thrifty and stay fabuless!
Teresa and Vicky
